I don’t reminisce
About things I miss…
Like eons back,
When two bits bought a gallon of gas,
But now buys only an eight-ounce glass…
Of unleaded Hess.
Or when two bits bought a pint of beer,
But now buys only a shot glass of Bud.
Since two bits of gas won’t get you home
And two bits of beer won’t wet a whistle…
They only remind me of what I miss,
So I don’t reminisce.
